Default Two Questions...

I really appreciate all the help I receive on this forum, and I have two more little questions I would like to ask the community:

1) I just built a computer using this MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128034

Will the older chipset bottleneck a system (I.E. 8800gt/HD 3870), I will probably get one of these cards soon.

2) What's a good cheap (preferably really cheap), yet decent sound card. My integrated audio has this really high pitched whine in it (only really noticeable when you plug in headphones), and since I need to do audio editing, this needs to be fixed.

Thanks in advance,

1. Nope, a 8800 series card will be right at home on that motherboard.

2. Decent and cheap: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE

my nvidia nforce4 ultra doesnt bottle neck my 8800 that much, although there is a noticable decrease in 3dMark06, when i play games all the FPS are good enough until i get a better motherboard.
